This was our first visit to the Gulf Coast and its casino lineup. We are pretty high level players at Mohegan Sun and the various MGM properties in Las Vegas. I was prepared to be underwhelmed by the Beau, based in part on the reviews I'd found online. What a pleasant surprise I had on our visit in mid October to Beau Rivage. The property itself is not large when compared to the others that we frequent,smaller was not an issue, had everything one could want. The staff was uniformly pleasant and professional, they really seemed to give a darn. I'm a slot player and found the machines here to be quite fair, as noted by another poster, you could play for a long time for your money. We had a Gulf facing room which was very nice and kept immaculate by the staff. The pool area overlooks the Gulf and is very nice. We ate at the lobby Cafe several times for different meals and had almost no food complaints, certainly no service issues, very professional. We ate at the barbecue restaurant twice, both times very good, had the 24 oz. Delmonico on the second visit,one of the best steaks I've had out. Everything was comped for us (room,food,beverage,even spa and massage), so I have to agree with another poster that the comps do seem generous. We are very fussy travelers, used to (and being prepared to pay for) top shelf travel, this place did not disappoint on any level. My only suggestion would be to have more of the restaurants open on a daily basis, they close on a rotating system and this reduces your choices.
